Jillian is a nephrologist and aspiring health services researcher. She received her B.S. in neuroscience from McGill University, D.O. from Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed internal medicine residency training at University of Illinois Chicago before returning home to the Bay Area to complete nephrology fellowship at Stanford. As a first-year fellow, she was awarded the American Kidney Fund Clinical Scientist in Nephrology grant to study immunologic matching between kidney donors and recipients and its effect on equitable access to transplantation. She hopes her work will inform policy decisions regarding kidney allocation so as to improve access to kidney transplant and transplant outcomes for minority communities and disadvantaged groups.
